Although infrequent storms hit in the low season from June to November, the Virgin Islands is basically a year round destination with a tropical climate moderated by eastern trade winds, little temperature change through the seasons and relatively low humidity.
The typical daily maximum temperatures are around 32°C (90F) in the summer and 29°C (84F) in the winter. The minimum temperature are around 24°C (75F) in the summer and 21°C (70F) in the winter. Statistically the wettest period is September – November and the driest period is February – March.
The high season is the drier, cooler months of mid December-March and Easter, when visitors’ wish to escape from their cold, grey winters. It’s obviously best to avoid this time if you are a budget traveler. Apart from high prices who wants share paradise with cruise ship invasions? (Unless you go to one of private island resorts).
The photos on all these BVI and USVI pages were taken in May, a little cloudy at times but not a problem for the visitor, just the photographer!
November to May offers the best sailing conditions; peak time is around Christmas and BVI Spring Regatta, a one week event in late March to early April.
